Considering the right financial advisor is one of the most important decisions you will make in life and one you want to get right. You deserve a knowledgeable team.

You deserve alignment of interest. You deserve transparency of process and a reasonable cost. You deserve a fiduciary. We partner with our clients to deliver this experience and more. We are financial advisors and client service specialists, who collaborate, research, debate, invest and evolve with you to deliver a better wealth management experience.


The Gill Group is led by John Gill, who is nationally recognized by the Financial Times*, Barron’s* and Forbes* as one of the country’s best Financial Advisors.

Our team of Financial Advisors also includes Bryan Horner, whom alongside John works with our clients every day to plan, invest and manage their financial goals. Our team is further strengthened by Mari Hurd and Katie Bosler who work tirelessly to deliver clients a better experience.



We believe better financial decisions are rooted in the wisdom and experience of great minds such as Albert Einstein.

Investors experience better results when we help identify their risk tolerance and goals, and establish a plan to avoid making short-term decisions based on emotions. This chart illustrates exactly why this matters. The “average investor” greatly underperformed the market by succumbing to the most common pitfall of investing - buying and selling at inopportune times.


We strive to provide superior client service and access to a team of professionals with depth of experience. Mari Hurd and Katie Bosler spend their days dedicated to helping clients with any number of tasks and are an integral part of what makes our team a strong financial partner.

*Disclaimers: The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years' experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receives a fee in exchange for rankings. *Image reprinted with permission of Barron's. The Barron’s Top 1200 Financial Advisors is an independent listing produced by Barron’s. The Barron’s Top 1200 is based on assets under management, revenues generated by advisors for their firms, and quality of practices. In evaluating advisors, we examine regulatory records, internal company documents, and extensive questionnaires filled out by the advisors themselves. * The Financial Times 400 Top Financial Advisors is an independent listing produced annually by the Financial Times (March 2018). The FT 400 is based on data gathered from advisors, broker-dealer home offices, regulatory disclosures, and the FT’s research. The listing reflects each advisor’s status in six primary areas: assets under management (AUM), asset growth, compliance record, experience, credentials and online accessibility. This award does not evaluate the quality of services provided to clients and is not indicative of this advisor’s future performance. Neither the brokerages nor the advisors pay a fee to the Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 400.
